    Wow, wow, wow ! That is really nice, really nice set up.

    Surely that is snow from last year ? It's still 80 degrees here.

    Very nice install. That looks like serious heat. In what neck of the woods is this installed Rover?

    Good eye Robbie, yes the outside pic is from March of this year. The others are from this past weekend.

    Location is White Mountains New Hampshire. Near Tenny Mountain Ski area (15min)

    If you look close you will see the side door cracked open for a bit to get the fire going.

    The ceiling fan keeps all that heat moving nicely!

    Man that is nice ! Love the metal roof, we started to do that but have to take too many boards loose on dormers upstairs to reflash under the metal for some reason "the roofer said", so we are going with 50 year shingles.


    Lets see, I'm 51............I won't have to reshingle until I'm 101. :)

    Man, I love your place Rover, very nicely done. Really nice integration of the stove into the place, I see the stairwell, looks like you should get a good bit of heat up to the second floor as well.

    Second floor is actually a loft overlooking the kitchen (all open) so with natural convection and the help of the ceiling fan the heat will be distributed nicely in all of the living areas (a fan down the hallway may help with bedrooms), the loft when finished will have the same log railings as the outside of the house, all logs are from the property. For privacy I will get a nice rug to hang over the railing so that one cannot see to the back of the loft.

    First photo is the stairway looking down, the granite cap on the right is the top of the wall behind the stove.

    Second photo is the view into the loft from the edge.

    Sweet Deal..

    Is that a f600 the biggest Jotul? 24" log side to side?

    How many square ft is the place?

    Curious as to how it does because it was either that or the Mansfield for us..

    Yes that is the Jotul F600 Firelight , we are very happy with the Jotul line . In addition to the Firelight we also have an Allagash GF3 that we use when we are at our main residence in Mass.

    Sq ft is ~1850 2+years of work invested so far.

    The F600 eats up 24" wood no problem.

    Last weekends project is complete, R30 insulation on the underfloor. Worst job there is!
    It's also where I picked up all the contamination on the lens.

    Wild, the insulation looks like clouds up above. Very nice, neat plumbing too.
